What is a Scribe?

Ideally, a pre-medical student (or student interested in pursuing a career within medicine) who works side by side with providers enabling them to maximize efficiency and as a result allow delivery of premier patient service.  

Alongside the provider, a scribe works amid busy trauma/medical codes & procedures, taking care of the central valley’s sickest patients. Needless to say our scribes see everything emergency medicine has to offer.

Not only do scribes function as a provider’s “right hand” person, their on-the-fly personal assistant, but they also engage in ongoing clinical research contributing to publications within the medical literature, and are involved with departmental extracurricular activities.

History of the Program:

Since its humble beginning in 2012, with only 2 scribes supporting 10 residents and multiple attending physicians, the CRMC scribe program is 100% successful in our scribes matriculating to MD/PhD/DO/PA school out of those who successfully stayed and completed our program. Since then, the scribe program has grown nearly 10-fold.
